Putin wary of democracy shocker

Tass are reporting him as saying,
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has warned Moscow's partners in the West against attempts at whipping up democratic processes in other countries in connection with the ongoing events in North Africa. He was speaking at a joint news conference with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, devoted to the results of the full-scale meeting of the Russian government and the EU Commission.
But frankly I suspect he is rather over emphasising the impact if the EU. Not sure that it does 'whipping up', more gentle stroking, or patting.

The thought of Ashton wielding a whip, under any circumstances,gives me the creeps.
